Roman Gonzalez vs. Solis or Calderon Possible for 10/1

By Osman Rosales

The two division world champion (105 and 108 pounds) of the WBA, Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez, saw action last Saturday at Plaza de Toros in Cancun, Quintana Roo, against Mexico's Omar Salado, and knocked his opponent out without any problems. Gonzalez's manager, Silvio Conrado Jr., met with a representative of Teiken Promotions to finalize his boxer's position on the big card which is being planned for October 1 in Las Vegas. In the main event Rafael Marquez will challenge Toshiaki Nishioka, the WBC champion at super bantamweight.

Gonzalez could face IBF junior flyweight champion Ulises "Archie" Solis of Mexico or former champion Ivan Calderon of Puerto Rico.

"The fact is, now we can confirm that  Chocolatito will fight in Las Vegas in October, possibly against Ulises "Archie" Solis, who won the IBF 108 pounds, or Ivan Calderon, who made ​​a name for himself in the United States," said Silvio.

The card will be a co-promotion by Teiken, Top Rank and Zanfer Promotions - and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is being reported as the likely venue.

Roman vs solis is the fight most likely to happen because Calderon is done as a boxer he just doesn't have his legs anymore.

I read Calderon to be going to 105 so maybe Raul Garcia, since he's WBO...maybe...

Calderon fight not going to happen gonzalez not a big name in the u.s so not enough money for calderon yet it will be a mexican card in las vegas

Awesome...I'm hoping it's a unification against Solis. And, it would be a damn good fight and a good card. I hope this pans out. And, the writer deserves a raise, boxingscene :D

I'd prefer Gonzalez-Solis. That could turn out to be a good card, hopefully Showtime picks it up.
